The Silence of the Marsh ^ Ending Explained

Released in Spain days before the ending of 2019 and now internationally distributed by Netflix in the midst of the quarantine of the Coronavirus pandemic, The Silence of the Marsh (Original Title: El Silencio del Pantano) is a film that has divided the critics: from those who rate it as a real piece of art by director Marc Vigil (The Ministry of Time ), to those who label it as a silly and simplistic film, passing through the intermediate points that rescue the performance of Pedro Alonso ( Berlin, Money Heist ) but destroy the handling of the narrative.

Indeed, the film includes brilliant performances, starting with Pedro Alonso’s, also highlighting Nacho Fresneda’s (Chema), in a frankly terrifying role, somewhat reminiscent of Javier Bardem’s work in No Country for Old Men , and the less scary, but much heavier role of Carmina Barrios (Purification “La Puri”). However, although the narrative is perhaps too ambitious for what the script really is, it is indisputable that we are dealing with a good quality product.

Now, if after seeing the film, you got lost between what is real and what is not real, between what happened and what did not happen and between knowing if the protagonist of the film is DOA, I suggest you to keep reading, because right below and without further ado, we will analyze and explain … The Silence of the Marsh.
